the ground game for obama and his allies was much greater. that's another issue we've got to address -- >> and arguably, we saw this -- and arguably, this was foreshadowed, in some of these places, when ron paul was out organizing. >> that could well be. the overwhelming issue is, however, will the republican party welcome newcomers and establishment people often are not inclined to do that. i trained thousands of conservatives through my leadership institute every year, and i can tell you that if we're going to build the republican party, we need to welcome newcomers. we need to treat them fairly and politely, and even cordially, and have to make allowances for people who are newcomers, who may not quite understand the procedures and may be a little rambunctious. >> are you confident this is going to pass, your ability to rescind some of these orders? >> i have no idea. it's going to be very difficult to pass, because under the change of rules, the republican national committee can change the rules, but it requires a three quarters vote of all of the 168 members of the national comm
: denis mcdonough has been a trusted adviser to president obama counseling him on foreign policy issues during the 2008 campaign and later as deputy chief security adviser. he was in the situation room during the historic raid that killed osama bin laden. >> it was quite a team effort over the course of this. the president obviously leading that team. >> reporter: now the president is poised to name mcdonough chief of staff. the person responsible for helping make his second-term goals a reality. it's a key role that requires the right fit as captured by the popular tv show "the west wing." >> you got a best friend? >> yes, sir. >> is he smarter than you? >> yes, sir. >> would you trust him with your life? >> yes, sir. >> that's your chief of staff. >> reporter: the 43-year-old mcdonough grew up in minnesota. one of 11 children in what he's described as a proud, catholic family. he's kept a low profile in the administration but won fans as a man of integrity. >> denis traveled extensively with the president. when you spend day in and day out with someone in a high stakes very stressful

to the biggest player is a little bit of a joke, i guess. >> brown: what do you think about the legal issue here? >> well, the legal issue in part hinges on the 2001 thanks, of the use of military force. it's worth noting both republican and democrat attorneys general since the bush administration into the obama administration have argued that it is legal in terms of self-defense purposes to target individuals actively threatening the united states. and-- >> brown: in other countries. >> in other countries. >> brown: without declared wars. >> yes-- well, that's part of the issue here. we have an ongoing conflict with a terrorist organization that has declared jihad or war against the united states. >> what we don't know is we don't know to what extent this administration is relying on the 2001 report or nothing at all. the legal opinionrafed by the justice department now a couple of years ago has been so tightly held, that even senator widen, the number three ranking member of the senate intelligence committee-- which is supposed to have oversight-- is not allowed to see the opinion. and then th
routes to talk up the issue. hari is back with our look. >> sreenivasan: just eight days after president obama unveiled a sweeping proposal to address gun violence, senate democrats put forward a plan of their own that would renew a ban on assault weapons. the measure was introduced by california democrat dianne feinstein, who led the effort to pass the first ban in 1994. that legislation expired a decade later, and feinstein said it was past time to take action. >> we have done our best to craft a responsible bill to ban these assault weapons. guns that are designed for military use bought all over this country and often used for mass murder. >> sreenivasan: feinstein's proposal would ban the sale, transportation, importation or manufacturing of more than 150 specifically named firearms as well as certain semi-automatic rifles, handguns and shotguns; limit ammunition magazines to ten rounds; grandfather weapons legally owned on the date of enactment and, exempt over 900 weapons used for hunting or sporting activity. in response, the national rifle association released a statement that s
on thursday, obama urged the senate to grant her a speedy confirmation. >> i am confident she has experience and resolve to tackle these complex issues and protect the american people in a way that a smart and in a way that is fair. i expect the senate to confirm mary jo as soon as possible so she can get to work. >> mary jo white would be the first former prosecutor to head the sec, a critical position for the oversight of wall street. while supporters of bills for her nomination as tougher and financial regulation in the second term, she also brings the job, a resume, of defending top financial institutions as a white-collar defense attorney. her client list includes former bank of america head ken lewis, the board of morgan stanley, and the firm jpmorgan chase. in a statement, the consumer advocacy watchdog group public citizen expressed cautious optimism over her appointment, calling her "tough prosecutor with expertise in complex securities and financial fraud." during his appearance, president obama also announced the renomination of consumer financial protection bureau director richar
issues and challenges that i have seen in the entire time i've served on this committee, and i particularly welcome the new members in that regard. i'm very grateful to president obama for nominating me and entrusting me with this important responsibility, and i am particularly grateful to secretary clinton, senator mccain and senator warren for their introductions of me just now. i will not take it personally that this may be the one item in washington that seems to unite democrats and republicans to get me out of the senate quickly. secretary clinton, particularly, has served above and beyond the call of duty. i think everybody on this committee would agree. her service has been superb and we all thank her for a job well done, for her tireless efforts on behalf of our nation. she has set a very high mark for the stewardship of the state department and her commitment to country. and i can pledge to you that with the consent of the senate, i will do everything in my power, summon all my energy and focus to build on her record and on the president's vision. senator mccain, as he
as pattern. it fit as pattern with not only the obama administration and mrs. clinton. she started her tenure going to china refusing to raise human rights issues but saying issues like climate change were too important so she couldn't raise human rights. this is norm with iran. refusing to raise any issue seriously with the government beyond the nuclear weapons program. martha: i wao point out the video people are seeing to the right of you is ev prison which is a notorious prison. the conditions we heard from the pastor's wife, up until now they were able to speak to him on the phone. his children were able to speak with him on the phone. his family in iran was able to visit with him once in a while. he is in a much more isolated part of the prison and that communication will be cut off completely. how would you as a senior state department advisor how would you advise the administration to try to deal with this subject? >> well the more publicity can be brought to this, the more pressure can be applied, the better. frankly dealing with dissidents, i would call this man a dissident now, aro

used in that capacity by the obama administration. i do not agree with him on all of the issues. i was troubled by his attempts to negotiate with bashar assad, who was very little credibility. he first voted against the war in iraq, then voted for the surge that made it possible for us to rescue a failing situation. but i do not think he will truly for -- to truly make the foreign policy of the u.s. any more than hillary clinton really did. this is one of the most centralized foreign-policy positions of ever seeing with the president and a handful of close aides truly making those decisions. i think john carey will be a capable the plant carrying out those decisions. host: there will be a live hearing today. one of the nominees, chuck keiko, nominated to be the -- chuck heigl, nominated to be the defense secretary. what do you think about? guest: there is no question he has been outside the mainstream of the senate. do not get me wrong, his hair was them in vietnam is something everybody should respect and his many years of service in the country, something for which i have the mon
obama called secretary panetta before the news briefing and they issued a statement reading in part "today, by moving to open more military positions -- including ground combat units -- to women, our armed forces have taken another historic step to toward harning the atlantas and skills of all our military personnel ." throughing or rethroughing a ban on military-style sexual weapons and high-capacity magazines. joining some members of congress, law enforcement officials and members of gun safety organizations. this is an hour and 15 minutes. >> i want to thank all of you for coming today and i want to welcome you. this is a tough battle, so welcome. i'm pleased to be joined this morning by a cross section of americans who have been affected by gun violence. we have with us today, police chiefs, mayors, teachers, doctors, members of the clergy, mothers, gun safety groups, victims of gun violence and many others who care deeply about this issue. i would really like to thank my colleagues in the senate and the house who have chosen to stand together on this important issue. some of us
on this story. >> a lot of movement, a lot of conversations happening, at least, on this issue. and gabby giffords, and her husband, right after the hearing that dana bash was telling us about, she and her husband, mark kelly, they met with president obama at the white house, and the white house sent out this photo of them talking in the oval office. they were talking about, as he told you, the issue of gun control. >> and right after that meeting at the white house, mark kelly came here to "the situation room" and joined me. first of all, let's talk about your wife. how did she prepare for that? because that's really the first time we heard her speak like that over these past two years. >> yes. she suffers -- gabby suffers from a condition called efacia because of the gunshot wound to the head, so he practiced. we only made the decision to come up here a few days ago, but she put in some time getting ready and actually crafting the speech herself. so she was involved in the writing of it, and you know, she worked on it. >> and we saw the hand-written notes, what her speech therapist had
that in my opinion he is wrong on the issues in the middle east. but he is right in line i might say with president obama. bill: you said this was many years ago. i'm just wondering, with the passing of time was he able to explain to you fairly and sufficiently why he felt that way? >> i --. bill: and whether or not he perhaps has changed today? >> i don't think that will happen. he has been too consistent. bill, a good time to ask me that question in about six hours from now when the hearing's over. bill: perhaps we can revisit that. he faced opposition from others. whether it was his position on israel or the issue with iran. and others believe because he did not work in the department of defense, that this would be a novel start for a man like this because it hasn't been done that way before. had he worked at the pentagon or dod would your position be different? >> no. actually the, there are other issues too. the global zero movement, are you aware of that? that say we want a world without, without nuclear and yet, we have right now iran developing those capabilities, north cree
will be how far the obama administrationing is willing to go -- administration is willing to go. that will be determined over the next four years, and certainly iran and its nuclear issues, its nuclear ambitions will be one of the big subjects on the agenda in terms of foreign policy over the next four years. uma: we saw lots of fireworks yesterday with benghazi, any today so far in this confirmation hearing? >> reporter: you know, not so much. senator marco rubio rattled off a bunch of the hot spots in the world and talked about a lot of the problems facing the u.s. in terms of foreign policy but wasn't so much eventing on senator kerry, he was just essentially trying to lead in terms of saying the way forward on these issues, what are we going to do? the tone was pretty much set by arizona senator john mccain. >> should he be confirmed, and i'm confident he will be, i'm sure we will have our disagreements which i know neither of us will hesitate to bring to the other's attention. but i know he will acquit himself in that office with distinction and use his many talents and his
by senator hagel seemed to imply a willingness to talk to iran on some issues that i believe most of us would view as non-negotiable, and any willingness to talk to iran would need to be highly conditional. toator hagel's reassurance me and my office that he supports the obama administration's strong stance against iran is significant. we look forward to hearing senator hagel today in some depth on that subject. we will also be interested in hearing senator hagel's statement on the public statements is made on israel and the united states, that our policy of non-engagement with the syrians as, "isolated us more than the syrians," and a 2009 statement that "we should not isolate hamas," a terrorist organization. there is much to be explored at this hearing. but as we struggle with the difficult security challenges facing our nation, the president needs to have a secretary of defense in whom he has trust, who will give him unvarnished advice, a person of integrity, and one who has a personal understanding of the consequences of decisions relative to the use of military force. senator hagel cert
